Message from the Chief Representative

Chief Representative

I'm Teruyuki Ito, Chief Representative of JICA Egypt Office. It is my pleasure that you reached our page.

Egypt has faced challenges such as political anxiety and economic stagnation since 2011, due to the democratization movement under Arab Spring. Though Egypt is facing tough time, it is a major power of Middle East and expected to play an important role for the regional peace and stability.

In Egypt, economic development and correction of the disparities are the major challenge. Government of Egypt is energetically working on these priority issues.

Japan and JICA has been continuously cooperating with Egypt from 1970s. For example, we have supported development of infrastructure such as, Suez Canal Bridge, Assiut Thermal Power Station, Cairo University Specialized Pediatric Hospital, Water Treatment Plants in Giza Governorate and Fayoum Governorate, and Barrages for irrigation canal of Nile river. In addition, we also work on human development in various sectors such as agriculture, health, and transportation. Moreover, we cooperate with Egypt to implement training for third countries in Africa and Middle East.

We will continue to deepen our cooperation through realization of inclusive and sustainable development, poverty reduction, enhancement of living standard, human resources development and public sector reform.

JICA's current slogan "Inclusive and Dynamic Development" is also the direction for Egypt. JICA will make our effort to realize "Inclusive and Dynamic Development" and to contribute to Egyptian development through discussion with Egyptian Government and development partners.

We highly appreciate your support to make it come true.
